Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Dave's Picks Volume 3 - Auditorium Theatre Chicago 10/21-22/71

I’m quite surprised few have commented on this fine performance from October 21/22, 1971 live at The Auditorium Theatre in Chicago. The sound quality of this * recording is decent for the period, though not as dynamic as the soundboard tapes from both the Portchester and Fillmore East 1971 runs. For many of us in the tape trading community the Fillmore East 1971 tapes were the first great sounding soundboards available in circulation late 70s and early 80s.

The evolution of The Grateful Dead in 1971 is well documented with the departure of Mickey Hart in February, the absence of Ron McKernan in late August and the progression of the solo drummer Billy K providing the back beat coinciding with the emergence of one Keith Godchaux in October demonstrating three very different band line-ups and performance acumen, featuring several new song introductions, improved vocal harmonies and the addition of a “bad ass” grand piano player.

Quite the contrast when compared two short months prior, August 23rd, 1971 once again finding the Dead at The Auditorium Theatre, 1/3rd of the evenings performance being “the quartet” while Pigpen was absent from the stage. Two short months later and with the addition of Keith Godchaux freeing up Garcia from most of his ** rhythm responsibilities providing extra room for vocal delivery and stretching out on lead guitar. Overall i’d say that 1971 was a very important year for the metamorphosis of The Grateful Dead.

This October 22nd performance features snappy upbeat versions of Me and My Uncle > Ten Jed > Mexicali Blue > One More Saturday Night > Ramblin Rose > Cumberland, a mellow Black Peter > Cold Rain And Phil, compelling Comes A Time > eerie That’s It For The Other One and a classic sequence of Dark Star -> Sittin’ On Top Of The World -> Dark Star from the evening prior on October 21st.

* It’s unfortunate on this recording that you hear the sound of the stage and not the beautiful room that is The Auditorium Theatre, Chicago. Oh well, at least the levels are proper when compared to Road Trips Volume 1 Number 3.

** At least until fanning became something of a “lead rhythm technique.” :-)

Rob is trying to bait me. I put this pic up this morning in response to his horseshit post, and then thought I'd be nice to his stupid ass and take it down. Now he has reposted it.

Damn. That kind of twisted logic and not-so-clever manipulation pretty well speaks for itself, eh?

Oh wait, I mean, yes?

Hell ya man...That shit is hilarious. He's also faked deniro's name today and trolling him.

He's basically spinning out right now. Then again, he's done this so many times I cannot even keep track any more.

The beginning of Bertha is patched from a different show.
